(2018) Directed and co-written by Steven S. DeKnight, this sequel to 2013’s Pacific Rim is a noisy, violent, and utterly ridiculous sci-fi adventure. When a new threat appears from aliens intent on world domination, two hotshot pilots (John Boyega and Scott Eastwood) must train a group of very green cadets, including a gifted 15-year-old (Cailee Spaeny), to command the giant robots that will save the day. The duo is out to counter the wicked plans of a once-heroic doctor (Charlie Day), who has gone over to the dark side. DeKnight sacrifices plot and subtlety for relentless and repetitive action, laying waste to much of Tokyo in the process -- in the spirit of the Godzilla films of yore. Intense, but bloodless violence, brief sexual banter, occasional profane and crude language, an obscene gesture. (A-III -- adults.) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) HBO (cable)
